I really like GCA!! I haven't been going here for too long, but so far I have been more than impressed. The rules are kinda strict, but they aren't unbearable, and I don't have any issues following them. It's a very spiritual atmosphere and already I've learned a lot about how to strengthen my walk with God. They have great music and sports programs. The students here aren't stuck up. There rarely are bullying issues. It's so easy to make new friends. The teachers are excellent! They really help us understand subjects we don't understand. The coaches are great too! All of the staff are very supportive! The deans are GREAT and the dorm life is very structured, but it still gives you freedom.. I love everything about GCA and I would recommend it to anyone!!

GCA has many academically challenging courses and we are also very focused on Community service. We try to be real Christians and demonstrate how to live as real fallen but forgiven people.

This school is great. I live in Florida and I send my children there. I could send them to a Florida school, but the quality of GCA is far superior.

I strongly disagree with the review posted on April 21, 2005. I am currently a senior at GCA, and I LOVE it! The campus is beautiful, the other girls in the dorm are great, the deans/teachers/other faculty are ALWAYS willing to help you with homework, or just listen to you about life. As for the emphasis on worldly values? Hardly! I have NEVER been so close to God in my life! GCA gives you the opportunity and ability to make God a part of our lives! He's more than just a name, He's an actual part of our lives. And all parents out there, if you want to send your child to a school that will NOT ONLY uplift them in their spiritual values and in life, but allow them to create amazing friendships, learn from amazing teachers, and come to know and love a God thats indescribable beyond words. ^_^

I think GCA is the best school there is... The deans take great care of the kids and there is a very lifting christian environment

GCA is a wonderful school. Two of my children have graduated from GCA, and my third child is a sophomore. My children love GCA. More importantly, GCA along with a strong academic program, reinforces the Christian values we taught in our home. The campus, students, teachers, spiritual atmosphere, academics A++

I value christian education and have been very pleased with my son's education. He has grown spiritually at GCA and I have seen his walk with God grow stronger. There has been timely communication of school events and student abscences. Academically, GCA provides a strong and challenging education

This is a world class school. The school provides a unique approach to christian growth and learning. Both of my children have graduated from this school and are still strong christians today. Keep up the good work.

For a 'christian' academy, they do not uphold christian values! All kinds of rock music is allowed in the dorms, the girls dress immodestly, the teachers do not take struggling students aside and help them if they need encouragement or counceling, they put too much emphasis on worldly values rather than heavenly values. For a parent to send their kid to a school that will uplift their spiritual values and life, I do not recommend this school!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
